A hearty congratulations on your 250th! The dealnews podcast was one of the first podcasts that I subscribed to and has made me laugh for quite some time now. As a long-time listener I would have appreciated some mention of Those Who Have Gone Before - i.e., April, the non-Ledbetter Dan and snarky Jim. I can recall April's send-off, but Dan One and Jim just faded away. In any case, I thank you all for the many laughs with a touch of tech.
I loved Google Reader when it first came out. Then Google improved/upgraded/changed the UI and I rarely used it. It must be difficult to determine how well the UI works when a product is still in its growth phase. Are the increase in users due to users finding your site or due to the changes you are making? I'ld like to know if Google studies their failures with tools like they use for their advertisers? Its hard to vote for something if your only choice is to like it. Do you count not clicking on like as a vote against? I'm sorry I meant + when you want to vote -. Maybe the death of reader is a lot of readers voting -.

That's all I've got. My phone insists I install a new Android upgrade so I can figure out what it breaks. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
